Always enjoy the Evoque, but read car reviews for that. Delia was an awesome host — responsive and timely. Even with traditional rental companies steps away, this was a better experience.
You guys are amazing. Mahalo ʻoukou. So good to know we rented from such a nice kanaka, you don’t get that from other rental companies. And then to also be invited for kanikapila? So maika’i! Mahalo nunui!
Nice clean car that was easy to drive! Pick up and drop off at the airport was quicker than renting from any of the big rental car companies.
Great for the price and got us to where we needed to go. However, it didn’t seem to have been cleaned from the group before there were chopsticks, water bottles, and itineraries left in the car. The drivers side door was damaged which she let us know when we picked up the vehicle but it was hard to close. She mentioned this was getting fixed. Then the check tire pressure light was on the whole time. I messaged her about it and she said they were filled prior to the trip and they never seemed low the light just seemed to needed to be reset.
I had a great experience renting thru Turo and would definitely do so again! I was able to pick the car up directly from the airport without having to wait in long rental car lines. I also liked the fact that you know exactly what car you’re getting compared to a rental car agency. The entire process was very easy and I would highly recommend.
Elizabeth was amazing, she helped us a lot through our trip. She waited for our arrival even though our plane was delayed. And once we returned the car we need her as we forgot something in the car and she quickly showed up to help us. Her car was the best vehicle for the Island in the sense of milage, confort and budget. We are extremely grateful for the vehicle, the experience and for Elizabeth!
Perfect for a week on the big island. Not far from the airport, so Uber/Taxi was less than $20. Timely response to our questions both before and during our rental.
Mary was a fantastic host. Super nice and very accommodating to our request. The car was clean and have the bells and whistles. We deeply appreciated the heated heats after completing a cold, brutal hike of Mauna Loa Trail. The full moon roof gave us the off road SUV feel while driving around the island...I highly recommend Mary and her family's Hyundai Santa Fe!
Megan was great to rent from! Quick response and even helped beyond the car rental. Glad I chose her car!
It was a very simple and awesome way to be able to rent a car without any hassles. Thank you Thomas for your kindness, we were able to see our family and spend the most beautiful and exciting day together.
I was a wonderful experience being able to rent such a great car! There was so much room it took half the time I thought it would to take care of business. Leolinda was a joy to work with, she understood what I needed. It felt like family, my long lost Auntie.
Comfortable and clean car. Perfect for getting around the island for my family trip. Thank you!!
Great car and pickup/drop-off was super easy at Hilo. When back on the big island, I’d definitely look to see if this car is available.
Bonnie was a pleasure to rent from! She was willing to pick us up from the airport and also met us at the airport to get her car back. She had a really positive attitude and made renting a car from very stress-free. The car itself was very clean and safe to drive around big island around!
Shae is such a wonderful person and the car is BEAUTIFUL. Definitely going to be the cheapest rental for this big and nice of a car on the big island. She was able to add on a surfboard for the entire trip for $30 and has the vehicle packed with amazing Hawaiian music and optional add ons! Great on communication, seamless pickup, and overall a great experience. My go to for a rental in Hawaii :)
We rented the car for one day and night. Codi was very responsive and punctual. We had to return the car a little earlier than the scheduled time. She was very helpful and made it flexible for us. As a 2021 Cadillac, the car is in great condition and equipped with all necessary modern tech packages. Inside is very clean. There is a virtual panel shows in the driver’s view which is kind of fancy. Gas consuming was economic for this type of car. We drove around the volcanic national park went up to the Mauna Kea visitor center and it cost us a little less than one tank of the gas. Will recommend Codi‘s Cadillac to friends :)
Rental transaction was very easy with car waiting for us at the Hilo Airport, as well as delivery back to Nova. Communication was easy and consistent…would rent again if needed!
Great experience! Car is fantastic for island trips and has all amenities one could need. Highly recommend!
Allison was responsive and the vehicle is GREAT on gas mileage. Highly recommend renting this vehicle if you are coming to the Big Island.
We had a great experience renting this Jeep. I highly recommend renting from these lovely people!
Everything was great except one thing. I reached out to the host to pick up the car a few hours early. He agreed but when I was asked to modify the trip I was charged $140 just for a few hours. I was in need so I paid it but the host and I both agreed the cost was very steep for a few hours difference.
Such a amazing car to road trip the big Island! Allison was very accomodating on such short notice and being able to have a pickup/dropoff at the airport is such a convenience. The Rav4 was smooth and the lane assist was a nice feature one long driving days! Dont miss out on this great car and value. Safe travels Mahalo!
Great Hospitality and Aloha of course would rent again from Thomas. I would rent anything he has to offer and anytime that I need a Turo ride…. Mahalo Nui Loa…
I definitely recommend this car for the quality and value. The car runs great and has an optimal gas mileage. Very clean and spacious it was very comfortable for our group trip and fit A LOT of luggages in the back. The owner is a very kind and educated man and showed us the Hawaiian kindness by giving us a ride to the airport after we returned the car. Mahalo for everything Ron!
Loved the car! It was exactly what we needed for our remote trip to Hawaii!
Alex was great! He made our trip seamless. He was very punctual, communicative and accommodating. The jeep itself was great as well. It’s perfect for your big island trip and going up to Mauna Kea since 4WD are required.
Cody’s 4Runner was a perfect car to drive around the island with. We were able to visit some of the best places on the island. He is also a great host who is communicative. Highly recommended!!!
Richard is an excellent communicator. He responds very quickly. After a few minor glitches, which he was very quick to resolve, everything went great. It is a cute, fuel efficent car. Only down size is the trunk space isn't very big, but then I am used to a larger SUV. Highly recommend.
Brian’s 4Runner was perfect for our Big Island Trip. The car is well maintained, clean interior and exterior. There is quite some distance between places, some partially unpaved roads, and lots of inclines in Hilo and on Big Island, so having a reliable, safe car is a key. Brian’s 4Runner covers all that and more. For us, the huge plus, that was very surprising was the gas! This being a hybrid, it definitely saved on the fuel. Communication with Brian was easy and he was accommodating with pick up and drop off. Overall, I would highly recommend renting this for Big Island trip.
Great host! Great car! Super convenient remote unlocking pick up option. Will rent from John again!
Wonderful! We had an amazing trip, and Bonnie gave us some great info about the island! Pick up and drop off at the airport was perfect!
Really nice car for big island, Epimenio was a great guy to rent from , he reply to messages and helpful.
Fely was the loveliest! She made renting her Subaru so easy. The car itself was super clean and drove nicely across the island. Pick up and drop off was a breeze.
Great and reliable car for our family of 4. Worked with us in slightly adjusting our arrival and departure times which greatly helped us out. They were a blessing to our family. Thank you for a great experience.
Great car, easy to use and picking up was a breeze. Epi was every easy to communicate with and we were very happy with the vehicle. The cherry on top was that we could rent a car seat for my infant and not have to travel with it.
Such a fun car to drive. Kept me wishing I owned a car like this. It was really tough to give it back because I still wanted to drive it around. This car was immaculate. Very clean inside and out. Our host Alealani was the best! She is very accommodating especially with our last minute changes on our trip. Alealani was very quick to respond to messages. She is very easy to work and communicate with. I highly recommend Alealani and her vehicle for your next trip to Hilo, Hawaii!!!
Awesome host! Billie was very accommodating and quick to respond to all messages! The Jeep was perfect! It was very clean and ran great! I would definitely rent from Billie again.
Joseph was awesome! He was great at communicating all the details and very helpful. We’re a family of five and really enjoyed the RAV4! It was perfect for us. Thanks so much Joseph!
Kittipan was awesome! So responsive. I booked the car early morning and he had it ready for me by 10:00am even despite my late notice. Pickup was EASY and so was Drop off. I left my house keys on the ring and he messaged me immediately and was even flexible with my pick up time for those. Very friendly. Car was IMMACULATE and drove so easy. HIGHLY recommend!
John was an excellent host! His vehicle was clean and pick up and drop off were a breeze. Would definitely do business with him again!
Penny was wonderful - very friendly and easy to communicate with - and the car was perfect. Highly recommend booking with Penny!
It was a great car for getting me around and had plenty of room for anything I needed! Very clean and easy to drive as well and Mary was very easy to work with and accommodating!
The equinox was spacious, clean, and just great to travel from beach to beach. Isaiah had water, hand sanitizer, wipes, and a list of restaurants and places to visit. Would definitely book the Equinox again. Thank you so much!
Jeep was fantastic! I’ve never been a huge fan of Wranglers but this one changed my mind! Had tons of fun driving it and being able to take the top down was just icing on the cake. Will definitely look for Joseph’s ride next time I’m on the island.
Virginie was wonderful to deal with. She was very patient with me as we were last minute renters and new to Turo. She could be reached immediately at any time and the car was wonderful, clean and comfortable for a family of 5. We were also able to get all of our luggage in easily. Thank you
Joseph was very accommodating with our airport pickup process, quick communication, and he even have us some exploring this of the Big Island. The car was clean, full tank, very spacious and the 4 wheel came in handy for certain hiking routes.
Description is accurate. Lovina is very easy to communicate with and drop off/pick up is very easy. Would recommend..
Great car and great people! Super accommodating, great communication, and a top-notch first Turo experience for our travel group. I highly recommend and would definitely use them again. Mahalo!
Ron’s car was super nice and spacious; had no problems with it. Will definitely try to book with Ron again whenever we come back! Thanks again Ron!
Wendy’s Honda Element was a perfect car for driving around big island! Car was clean, safe and reliable, and very spacious in back for bougie boards and beach chairs! We even wanted to sleep in the back of the car one night (the back is that big as the chairs can fold up) at Mauna Kea, but decided to go home instead. Also car was fine driving up to Mauna Kea visitor centre (just use first gear to get down mountain to avoid break exhaustion). Wendy was a great host, thank you for the awesome experience!
Wendy was very responsive! The car was clean and easy to drive and it was nice to see that Wendy took the effory to provide a few more touches like handsanitizer, aux cord, USB car charging port, sanitizer wipes and sunscreen in the car. The seats are easy to fold up if needed.
